Play Hot Tub

When To Get A Plug And Play Hot Tub?

When you look at all the images online of people relaxing in a hot tub after a long day’s work, do you think of buying one for yourself? A hot tub is an excellent tool for self-care, especially when you have had a long week. Probably one of the major concerns you have is that you are living in a rented space and can’t install a hot tub. That is where plug and play hot tubs come into play. You can use an energy-efficient plug and play small hot tub. All it takes is a 110v switch. Let’s look at if an 8 person plug and play hot tub is the best choice for you.

Why should I invest in a plug and play hot tub?

The best benefit of getting a plug and play hot tub is that it can literally be used anywhere with a 110v socket. All it takes is about 11 amps of energy. You can save up to $1000 since you don’t need an electrician to install the tub! This makes their upfront costs so much lower in comparison to your standard hot tubs.

If you are renting a home or have a vacation home or you like redecorating a lot, a portable hot tub is the best choice for you as you can move it easily, unlike hardwired models. So, all those times you wished to come home and relax after a long day at the office, you can now do so without any guilt!

A big boon is that these plug and play models are really energy efficient (granted, not as efficient as the hardwired model, but still pretty good). They are also much easier to maintain and so you have one less thing to worry about.

Also, a standard 220v hot tub requires a steady supply of power between 40-60 to run efficiently. This is not the case for a plug and play tub. If you feel you are experiencing power fluctuations, it’s best to go for a plug and play model to help you unwind.

Are there any cons to buying a plug and play hot tub?

As we have seen above, there are undoubtedly many benefits to buying a portable hot tub model. However, there are a few things to keep in mind while honing in your decision to purchase this model.

If you live in really cold cities and are looking for a relaxing time during the winters, your hot tub would require drawing on more energy to compensate for the quick heat-loss that occurs during icy days.

While you do get many benefits with having a portable hot tub, it does fall short on a few features if you were to compare it with the standard tub. For example, the same benefit of plugging it in a 110v socket would mean that the jets aren’t as powerful as the standard hot tubs. This is again a difference you will find when you do a side by side comparison.

In conclusion

As you can see, we have laid out both the positives and negatives of owning a portable hot tub. If you live in a very cold city, a standard hot tub is probably economical for you in the long run. Whereas, if you’re renting a home, or someone who has a job requiring relocation, a plug and play hot tub would fit perfectly within your budget. Also, if you own a vacation home, you can always up the decor with a hot tub that doesn’t pinch your pocket. Additionally, requesting an ex-display hot tub would get you a better deal! Portable hot tubs being easy to maintain and allowing you to give your electrician a day off when it comes to installations adds to its many benefits.
